In memory of Sarah Jones, who lost her life a week ago on set due to the terrible decisions of a production team, we are focusing on Safety & Awareness On Set. All of the IFN chapters will be talking about this subject in March. Sarah was a camera assistant from Atlanta who was killed on the set of 'Midnight Rider" a Gregg Allman biopic. Taking shortcuts with safety gets people killed. Please join us for an important roundtable discussion.

The meeting will be held Tuesday March 11th at 7:00PM, at the Hamilton 16 IMAX.

Our usual open networking session will take place after the discussion. All who have an interest in film are encouraged to attend.
